      This is the first and only app I pay for :D Sometimes it can feel like a chore to do stuff that is good for you and this app takes that away for me. I teaches you gently and pleasantly and Ive been able to stick to it and understand more about how minds work. It helped me stop biting my nails.

    Calm is my personal favorite - great for meditation! Fantastic stories, great guidance and the option to just have a silent moment

    Calm is great! The stories are wonderful and well narrated. Definitely recommending this to anyone who wants to sleep better.

    Great app with tons of background music/sounds (or none if you prefer that) with a lot of content including a simple breathing timer and the Daily Calm- a brand new meditation session every day. Constant updates, Android/iOS/website support all at a great price with some meditation sessions also available for free to try out.

      I love Calm. I've always struggled to adopt a steady meditation practice, but Calm makes it easy to form the habit!

      I discovered the Calm App a few years ago and it's been accompanying me in my meditation practice since then.

    Improve focus and boost your productivity with ambient noise

    A mix of the rain, forest and couple of other sounds make a HUGE difference to my working routine. Helps to focus, relax and fight stress, and all in one product.

    Music with words distracts me. I'm a weirdo.. so once I get tired of the BUMP BUMP BUMP of EDM, its Noisli for me.

      When I first found this through Chrome extensions store, I did not expect Noisli to have such a big impact on my focus and productivity. From now on, I take it with me to every office I move and every computer I use. Noisli is a must-have for an open office and helps you stay sane even when the world around is crushing down.

    Music for the brain to improve focus, meditation & sleep

    Been using since it launched and it is (no exaggeration) a life-changer. Whenever I'm struggling to get into writing/creating mode, I put on headphones and turn on "Focus" for 30-60 minutes. 5-10 minutes later, the distractions have melted away and I'm on task.

      I bought a lift time membership and pumped I made the move. I find this really helps me stay on task especially if I've had a bad night sleep or an intense day.

      I have been using consistently since purchasing a lifetime membership back in January. I mainly use it during work (programming), sometimes when sleeping.

    News Feed Eradicator

    Replace your news feed with an inspiring quote

    Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in an endless mindless scroll-athon. Installed this on my laptop and saved all scrolling for devices instead.

    This combined with turning off A L L notifications on phone and laptop (yes, you can live without Whatsapp message also, ask them to call / sms if it's urgent). You will see calming down sensation in matter of days.

    Using a Pomodoro timer really helps get in focus mode. The integration with my current to do app (Todoist) is great because it's bidirectional. Plus, the ability to block certain websites during a timer is a nice touch.

    Ever felt like those 100 browser tabs in Chrome are distracting you from work? This one is a bliss.

      Downloaded. Couldn't even try it stopped by request to register account. If every minor Chrome extension would require registration for usage, it would be nightmare. There are OneTab that does similar job very good with no need to provide an email.

      This one looks like hustling to get your contacts and spam you.

      Downloaded the product, looks great and perfect for a big problem I have had for years with bookmarks and then later realized that my brownser home page had change to toby?!?! what?? not cool. If you will change a setting in my browser you HAVE to let me know, and if you did let me know then it was not clear AT ALL.

    I'd recommend using this as a Pomodoro technique. Combine it with a kanban style setup on a Trello board and you're good to go. 25 minutes work, 5 minutes allowed distraction. Eventually the breaks just get annoying and you keep focused anyhow. Good luck!

    The best way to listen to Audiobooks on your iPhone

    Omer Molad
    Omer Molad4Co-founder and CEO @ Vervoe · Written
    I know most people recommended mindfulness or productivity apps. But I actually find that when I'm walking my dog and listening to a book I go into my own world and really focus on one thing - the story I'm listening to - which basically never happens otherwise. It's not something that keeps my distraction-free all day - nothing does - but it keeps my focused on learning and improving for a short period of time and I find that really valuable.

    TimeBit helps to focus on current and distract less. It`s a combination of timer & to-do list & routine builder made to keep focus on what`s really matters.
